Section 1 Code of Ethics Good Sportsmanship is vital to every contest. In order to encourage proper conduct during intramural sports contest, supervisors, officials, scores/timers, and administrative staff will make decisions as to warn, penalize, or eject players/teams for poor sportsmanship. The senior staff will rule on further penalties to be prescribed as a result of unsportsmanlike conduct as outlined below. The team captain/manager is responsible for the actions of all individual members of the team and for any spectators directly related to their team. The conduct of the players and spectators before and after each game is as important as the conduct during the game. Each team will be held responsible for conduct at these times, as well as during the game. Informed Consent Statement Your participation in Campus Recreation activities could result in physical injury, which could be serious or fatal! Adams State College assumes no responsibility for injuries received during intramural sports activities. Students, faculty, staff, spouses and/ or domestic partners are reminded that intramural participation is completely voluntary and involves inherent risk associated with the activities offered. It is strongly recommended that all participants have a physical examination and secure adequate medical insurance prior to participation.

Sportsmanship and Conduct Good Sportsmanship is a requirement, not an option, for participation in IM Sports Team Sportsmanship Team sports activities find their origin in the basic human need for play. Winning and losing are mere outcomes of this play. Abusive language toward officials, supervisors, other participants, spectators and manipulation of the rules are not "part of the game" and WILL NOT be tolerated. This negative sport behavior distracts from the satisfaction of competing, getting fit, and enhancing friendships. Intramural Sports Program Supervisors, Sports Officials, and Staff, jurisdiction is in effect from the time a team arrives at the playing site until the time the team leaves. Incidents outside of these limits may be examined as well. Thus, the captain and other players should be ready to act and prevent misbehavior and/or unsportsmanlike conduct of teammates. The following "Team Sportsmanship Rating System" has been implemented to ensure quality sportsmanship in team sports activities. Team Sportsmanship Guidelines

Each team receives a "team sportsmanship rating" at the conclusion of each game by the game officials. Be aware, an individual's behavior can have a dramatic effect on a team's rating. A team must have a 2.5 (average) rating during the season to be eligible for the playoffs. Each team must maintain a 2.5 rating for each game/round to continue in the playoffs, regardless of the outcome of the game. This is not an exhaustive list of unsportsmanlike actions. Nor does each element of each grade have to be obtained in determining a "team sportsmanship grade." There may be adjustments to the "Team Sportsmanship Rating System" if unsportsmanlike behavior merits such adjustments for management effectiveness. Sportsmanship Points Description 5 Points: Normal Game: Questioning an official on rule interpretation only. 4 Points: Some static: Some question of officials' judgment or repeated complaints. No infractions issued. 3 Points: Difficulty: Repeated question of officials' judgment. Unsports man like call in softball, volleyball, flag football; yellow card in soccer; and a technical foul in basketball. 2 Points: Harassment: Multiple unsportsmanlike calls, technical (not on the same participant), yellow cards or spectators harassment of the officials. 1 Points: Ejection: Any ejection, whatever the cause. 0 Points: Fighting: Includes threatening an employee. If involved in a fight your team could be removed from the league for the remainder of the season. Special Game situations 1. Games cancelled/not rescheduled due to weather, power failure etc. ­ both teams will receive a "5" rating. 2. A team winning by forfeit/default for reason other than sportsmanship will receive a "5" rating. 3. If a game is forfeited due to sportsmanship, the opposing team will receive their rating based on their actions up to that point. 4. A team forfeiting/defaulting for reason other than sportsmanship will receive no rating. 5. A team receiving a 2.5 or lower must have a their team captain meet with the CRIS Coordinator to be eligible to play their next scheduled contest. Individual Conduct During any Intramural Sports activity, all participants are expected to display those qualities and behaviors associated with good sportsmanship. Failure to maintain control during participation may result in suspension from play. Any player who is ejected from a game for unsportsmanlike conduct may not play with his/her team for the next scheduled game. Additionally, an ejected participant will need to depart the site (within one minute) for the remainder of the contest to avoid a team forfeit. All ejected participants must contact the Intramural Sports office and arrange an appointment with a member the Intramural Sports Administrative Staff, within 24 hours, prior to any further participation in any Intramural Sports activity. Disciplinary meetings must take place in person and no individual will be reinstated in the sport in which they were

ejected prior to this meeting for ejections pertaining to unsportsmanlike conduct. Upon scheduling a meeting with the Intramural Sports Administrative Staff participants will be released to participate in all other activities except for the activity in which they were ejected. Failure to attend the disciplinary meeting may result in all games between the point of ejection and scheduled meeting being forfeited (this will pertain to any intramural sports activity). There may be adjustments to application of official game rules for conducting contest if unsportsmanlike behavior merits such adjustments for management effectiveness. Overt behavior, such as verbal stimulus or body language stimulus that is interpreted as being taunting, will result in the following: 1st Offense ­ Warning, 2nd Offense = Warning + penalty, 3rd Offense = Ejection, 4th Offense = Team forfeit ­ this could happen at the first, second, or third level Intentionally assaulting a staff member or game official in any manner will result in immediate ejection and suspension from participating in Intramural Sports for a minimum of one semester. This also includes an attempt to strike, even though there may not be contact. Participants using threatening behavior, intimidation tactics or taunting game officials or staff members will result in immediate ejection and suspension from participating in Intramural Sports for a minimum of a game. Unaccepted physical contact or fighting (defense is not an excuse for fighting) during Intramural Sports would be handled on a case-by-case situation: The following offences are merely guidelines; disciplinary actions may result in more severe penalties. 1. First Offense: Suspension from play for a minimum of two games. 2. Second Offense: Suspension from play for a minimum of one semester and referral to the Office of the Dean of Students. 3. Third Offense: Suspension from Intramural Sports for the remainder of time in school and referral to the Student Life Department and the Office of the Dean of Students. Note: This includes any team member or spectator who leaves the bench/viewing area to participate in any isolated altercation. Additionally, at any time when ASC Campus Police are called to diffuse a situation all suspensions will start at a minimum of 4 months or one semester. Unsportsmanlike behavior suspension(s): 1. First Offense: Suspension from play for a minimum of one game. 2. Second Offense: Suspension from play for a minimum of two games. 3. Third Offense: Suspension from Intramural Sports for one semester.

Note: All unsportsmanlike conduct brought to the attention of the Intramural Sports Staff will be reviewed and ruled on by the Intramural Sports Administrative Staff. Cheating Any individual found cheating will be suspended for a minimum of one game. Examples of include, but not limited to: 1. Playing on more than one team in the same sport. 2. Participating or attempting to participate under an assumed name and team manager's with knowledge of such actions. Individuals using or attempting to use another students ASC ID card will have the card confiscated and may be referred to the Office of the Dean of Students under the charge of "Providing False Information." 3. Withholding varsity, professional, or Sports Club status. 4. Participating after being suspended from competition and prior to being reinstated. Miscellaneous Penalties Any person/team that willfully causes damage to equipment or playing are shall assume responsibility for the full cost of repairs or replacement. Suspension or game forfeiture may result. No formal or informal artificial noise making that is interpreted as disrupting a contest is permitted, violators will be asked to leave the competition area. Animals, except for Seeing Eye Dogs, are not allowed at any Intramural Sports event. Note: More severe penalties may be imposed for any infraction of the rules or for conduct that infringes on the participation enjoyment of others. The above mentioned penalties are general guidelines. Suspension from Play and Reinstatement Procedures Any player, coach, or spectator who is ejected from an Intramural Sports contest is automatically suspended from Intramural Sports participation for a minimum of one game until official reinstatement. 1. Participants who are suspended from play for intentionally assaulting a staff member/game official or unacceptable physical contact or fighting are not eligible to participate in ANY Intramural Sports activities. 2. All team captains will be held responsible for their players participation during their suspension period. In the event that a suspended player participates in a game the team will be charged with a forfeit and may be suspended from further play. Additionally, the team captain will need to schedule an appointment with the Intramural Sport Administrative Staff to determine what penalties will be rendered upon the team and or team captain. 3. Each ejected participant is responsible for scheduling a disciplinary meeting with Intramural Sport Administrative Staff. All meetings must take place in person, no exceptions.

4. The Administrative Staff will determine the period of suspension for each person who is ejected. The minimum suspension is one game in the activity from which the person was ejected plus a three month probationary period. 5. No individual will be reinstated prior to a personal visit with the Administrative Staff. Participants who fail to meet with a staff member within one week of their ejection will be ineligible for all Intramural Sports activities until a meeting has been scheduled.

Honor Code All students are expected to know and abide by the regulations and policies set forth by the Honor Code, and are subject to disciplinary actions by the Institution for any violation of this code. The Department of Campus Recreation reserves the right to refer any incidents involving substandard student conduct to the Office of the Dean of Students. Protest Questions as to a Sports Officials' judgment are not valid grounds for a protest. There may be times when you feel like you have been wronged and you may be correct. But, if the wrong was caused by poor judgment (in your opinion) on the part of the Sports Officials, timers, scorekeepers, or other staff members assigned to the contest, the call shall stand and there is no recourse but to accept the Sports Officials' decision. A. Rule Interpretations All protest regarding rule interpretations or misapplication of the game rules must be verbally declared by the team captain at the instant of disagreement (prior to the next play), with the game officials. The game officials will immediately suspend play and contact the CRIS Coordinator or Graduate Assistant for Intramural Sports. The supervisor at the game site will confer with the sports officials to resolve the protest. If not satisfied with the decision of the student supervisor the team captains can fill an official written protest with the student supervisor. It is the responsibility of the team captain to make sure that all pertinent game information is correctly noted on the Protest/ Appeal form. Forms can be submitted no earlier the 4 hours after the completion of the contest and no later than 24 hours after the completion of the contest. During tournaments, or playoffs, when time is of the essence, the 4 and 24 hour rule does not apply. A written protest must be filed before the next round game (following the protested game) is scheduled to begin. Failure to do so waives all protests. In situations when ruling needs to be made immediately they will be rendered by member of the Intramural Administrative Staff. Intramural Sports discourage protest, but we all make mistakes and Intramural Sports is no exception, especially when we put our welfare in the hands of our peers. If an error is correctable, we hope that we can make things right whenever possible. All decisions relative to a valid protest will be rendered by the Assistant Coordinator. An immediate ruling on a valid protest will be rendered by a member of the Intramural Sports Administrative Staff.

Participant Eligibility The Intramural Sports Program will consider protest involving participant eligibility. The Intramural Sports Program strongly recommends that all protests regarding player eligibility be made known prior to the start of Intramural Sports contest. However, protest of this nature must be made in writing by noon the following business day, in the Intramural Sports office, or be made known to the Intramural Sports Supervisor on duty at the game site. It should not be considered poor sportsmanship to question the eligibility of a player. A strong Intramural Sports Program requires that the interest and concern of all persons involved are considered. When an official protest is presented which results in the identity and recognition of illegal actions within the structure and/or function of one or both teams, application of the governing rules will be administered. Forfeits and Defaults A. Forfeits, When a team and/or individual forfeits a scheduled contest, not only is the opponent unfairly inconvenienced, Intramural Sports staff members need to be paid as well, valuable playing time and facility space is wasted. Any more then two forfeits within a season of play automatically drops a team from participation in the final championship or playoff event. 1. If a team and/or individual forfeits during the regular season or playoffs, they will need to pay a $20.00 forfeit fee or they will be dropped from the league. To be reinstated (single elimination events are excluded), they must resubmit their forfeit fee within two working days. 2. Game time is forfeit time. There will be no grace periods. If a team and/or contestant fails to appear at the scheduled contest site by the exact time schedule, the Intramural Sports Staff member my delay declaring a forfeit, depending on special circumstances. B. Defaults As a courtesy to their opponents and to avoid being charged a forfeit, teams may request a default for games that they will be unable to attend. 1. All defaults must be made known to the Campus Recreation Office at least two hours prior to their scheduled contest. 2. Two defaults equal one forfeit. The second default will eliminate a team and /or individual from post-season playoffs, unless they resubmit a second by the time set forth. 3. A team's and/or individual's first default counts as a loss but does not jeopardize their chance of making the post-season playoffs. Section 5 Inclement Weather

As the responsible party for all intramural and club sport events and for all students participating in these events I as the Coordinator and my staff reserve the right to cancel any game whenever it is determined that the health or safety of students would be placed at risk. My inclement weather policy reads as follows, "Inclement Weather: The Intramural Sports Staff reserves the right to make all decisions concerning the postponement or cancellation of games due to inclement weather. Teams should not assume games will be cancelled simply because of rain but if the situation is deemed a safety issue which could result in the loss of life or hazard beyond normal game play requirements our staff will rendered the game a cancelation. Normally but not a requirement, cancelled games will be rescheduled within a week. However, this is entirely contingent upon facility availability and official's availability. Teams should check the ImLeagues website the following day to confirm their schedule after all inclement weather situations."
